Are all AQ2013 Level 4 exams hand-marked?

Hi all, I'm sitting my first L4 exam tomorrow (BDGT). I'm so discouraged by the written tasks and feel that no matter how much revising I do, I'm not really ready. Anyway, my exam centre told me today that all L4 exams have written tasks and therefore all are hand-marked with results coming in six weeks. Is this true? I thought they were all CBTs (other than the ISYS project) so have scheduled a few exams in quick succession...trying to recoup some time off due to poor health. Have I sunk myself??? Help!!

    The written questions are definitely human marked, with the rest of the questions such as calculations etc are computer marked.
    But, yes, all results for level 4 take up to 6 weeks!

    I would advise looking through the practice papers, green light tests and the performance feedback on the AAT website, as I always find it useful to see the overall weak areas of the exam.

    Have you done much studying?

    I don't think I've done enough so may need to rethink. Problem is that I booked an "all-in" distance learning course with Kaplan, so I'll lose all of my exam fees once the syllabus rolls over in January. I guess I was a bit too eager to save a few hundred pounds when I booked the exams in. To make matters worse, I sailed through the green light tests for BDGT butwhen I attempted the sample assessment there as material that I'd never seen before! So disheartening....not a good guide on this occasion it seems.
